4.8 Indirect call of builtins

Builtin macros can be called indirectly with builtin:

 
builtin(name, ...)
which results in a call to the builtin name, which is passed the rest of the arguments. This can be used, if name has been given another definition that has covered the original.

The macro builtin is recognized only with parameters.
